Being pregnant is a special experience – everything changes, especially your body, and it takes time to accept this. Maternity wardrobe used to be boring and dull, but fortunately today we have so many different styles and pieces to choose from that finding the perfect ones is no longer a challenge. Before you head out and buy a bunch of pieces you’ll only wear once, it’s wise to do a bit of research. We’ve prepared a list of 5 incredibly stylish pieces you should include in your maternity wardrobe.
Even though there’s nothing wrong with pregnant women choosing to wear high heels in the beginning, after a while ladies will start wearing flats more because their feet start swelling. A pair of charming sneakers, stylish espadrilles, and glittery flats will look good on pretty much any outfit and you’ll feel confident and comfy while wearing them. If you have trouble with swelling, don’t hesitate to size up for the time being, your feet will be grateful!
Jeans will never go out of style – they can be professional, casual, sexy, and elegant, depending on the rest of your outfit and accessories. Still, you won’t be able to fit into your favorite ones as your stomach keeps growing, but don’t despair. Once you find a pair of comfy maternity jeans, you’ll be able to rock any look you want and not have to worry about waistband of your jeans pressing on your stomach. Skinny legs, straight, or bell-bottoms, try out different styles and pick the ones you like best.
Maternity jeans may be comfortable, but nothing will ever be as comfortable as a pair of great leggings. You can choose to wear plain ones or find the ones with eye-catching prints, it’s completely up to you, but you should make sure that the fabric extends above your growing baby bump. Leggings with high waist let you play with tops: tucking a tank in or covering it with a flowing tunic. If you have a favorite pair already, you might want to put them aside and wear them after the delivery or your baby bump can stretch the waist a bit too much.
Tanks and tees are the best, but you should pick the ones with a bit of extra material. When you wear them extra long, they will make your belly look smaller, especially if you combine them with shorts or leggings. Buy the ones made of soft, natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk, and choose the ones that are cut in a way that will best fit your (constantly transforming) shape. Boho tunics are also great for hot summer months because they let your skin breathe and make it easy for you to move around.
There are women who don’t like wearing jeans and pants and instead choose skirts. Skirts are convenient and can look charming on you, but you have to make sure to buy the ones with elastic waistbands. Maxi skirts look great with sandals and flowy blouses, but a high-waist pencil skirt is perfect for dressing up and transforming a casual into an elegant look. Basic black pairs well with pretty much any top, but a trendy print one is also on-point when paired with a button up blouse or a laid-back tee.
Being a mom is the most difficult job in the world, but it’s also the most rewarding one. After you give birth to your child, you’ll discover that you don’t have as much time for yourself as you used to have. Therefore, it’s perfectly natural that you want to stay stylish and elegant for as long as possible. Find clothes you feel most comfortable in and embrace the bump like celebrities do.
